More of everything please
This game is absolutely...absolute. Im spending (or should i say wasting) my 2 weeks a year vacation on playing this game. We need more of everything. You had a DLC for pocket change. Can you introduce a DLC for what we users would like you devs to work on? Like DLC for devs working on art, bugfixing, more quests, more resources, balancing, etc.

Im a huge fan of the art. If possible, can the devs respond to when we can expect new art. Im specifically more interested in like 30 new characters (crafters, workers, warriors, 10 each). What amount of money would be required to make this part of the game being prioritised, read how can we push Ewa Padilla to produce more art? If i were to donate 500 USD right now, would you start working on that Ewa? :D

Thanks for your kind words :)
Uh, I'm only a humble at director / UI artist on the project :P Card and event arts were done by commissioned artists, it would be impossible to pull off without any external support. Plus, I suck at drawing :P
Now, I really appreciate the support you're offering, but we have no plans for further DLCs for Thea because we'd like to start another project soon. That of course doesn't mean we'll stop to provide support for Thea, but we won't be able to put in the amount of time that a DLC would require.

I think the problem is that the art is more expenisve than you think, it cost about 1000$ for about 30 card graphics, but I think this can be done as a patch instead of DLC, because as A'vee said we do nto plan any future DLC's
Due to the amount of work we have on our hands at the moment we cherry pick some requests from the forum and implement only those, we do not want to start feature request thread. So community patch will contain only art boost based on how much coins players want to invest in it :)

Thank you for answering my question.

If i chip in 1000USD to that paypalaccount, can you guarantee me 30 new faces like the above described?

Best regards

Stares at the screen in disbelief
Are you serious? *.*
That's definitely possible, I'll just need to ask our artist if he's free to do them for us.
Najmanj Jun 27, 2016 @ 9:48am 
All right, its done. If we can get more faces for a rebate with your artist, let me konw, because i might be interested. Let us also know when the work starts and when we can expect it to be finished. In the meantime, im in the game...

One other thing, can you ask the artist to make different different kind of bigos and lezco (like meat + veggies = meat bigos and bird meat + veggies = bird bigos or whatever), it makes me mad ingame not to be able to tell these apart. If he wants more for this ill chip in.

Also, find out other areas that the game can expand on, like more monsters (dragon roaming the land?), more resources being able to produce more stuff. Ill chip in once the costs have been calculated.

this bigos thing makes me mad (not being able to tell the different bigoses apart)...did i mention that?!

Wow, you were not joking. Thank you kind sir!
I am organizing the new art. I've been told, it will take around 1-2 months to complete. Manthos is doing commissions for other clients but will try to squeeze us in, GeoKon is yet to confirm his availability. I'll try to split the work between them and add into the game as soon as their ready.
Thanks again, we are truly amazed by your support!

I'll see what can be done about the food ;) Need to find something that would fit the setting of the game.

When you say no new dlcs for thea, what does that mean?
No new resources, enemies, equipment etc? Nothing new is going to be added into the game?
If so then im really sad to hear that because i really like this game.
Najmanj Jun 27, 2016 @ 10:16am 
No problems, happy to help. Its an extremely good game youve got here. And i feel that its not ready by far. Now is the time to add more content. And more. And more! But whatever you guys decide.

Im sorry for my ignorance, is there a thread on the discussion as to what your next project will be? By the way, was thea profitable for muha games?
A'vee  [developer] Jun 27, 2016 @ 10:40am 
Well, Thea has already got lots of content with the two decent sized DLCs it received, but as the game grows, we feel the limitations of some of our systems. There are things we can't do without turning half the project upside down. We have not announced a new project yet, we don't want to brag about something we haven't even started yet. But we need to make new games to survive, plus we don't want to be seen as makers of one game, because we've got so many ideas that await execution.
Thea was profitable of course, we wouldn't be able to add new content and think about a second project if it wasn't. It has paid off its development cost and provided us with capital to let us make what we love for the next couple years. I guess you could roughly estimate the numbers based on steamspy if it interests you ;)
We're not swimming in cash though and we won't be moving to new shiny offices or hiring more people full time. We will be able to spend significantly more money on assets though, but since it will be our second project, the expectations will be higher too.

I understand, just kinda sad because i just recently got into the game really hard and now that i know there wont be new stuff added it lowers my excitement quite a bit.
I am kinda picky though, i dont like playing games that are not being continuously worked on and updated with new things.

There's always the event editor, you can make the game more refreshing yourself by making a lot of new random events.
A'vee  [developer] Jun 27, 2016 @ 11:02am 
We will be adding some new things, they just won't be as big as any of the DLCs. Expect some quality of life UI improvements, that new character arts Najmanj kindly sponsored, bugfixes and whatever else we've got time for. Also, our community is making new events using the editor, that should give you some fresh content ;)
